Presentation Abstract

BOE has grown into the world’s largest display company through continuous capital investment, extensive R&D and unique IP development. Founded in April 1993, BOE Technology Group Co., Ltd. is a leading IoT company providing intelligent interface products and professional services for information interaction and human health. At BOE’s core is a semiconductor display business that integrates IoT innovation, sensor and solutions, MLED and smart engineering medicine.

This session explores BOE’s ADS Pro LCD innovation and advanced MLED technologies that are driving the next generation of displays. We will delve into two of these innovations in this session.

First, we will explore ADS Pro, a high-end industry-leading LCD technology solution that was independently developed with BOE’s own intellectual property. We will detail how ADS Pro enables full viewing angles, hard screen touch, and ultra-high refresh rates, bringing a new world of smooth and vivid display experiences.

Next, we will dive into α-MLED. Alpha denotes innovation, which is a novel LED display application solution based on glass substrate semiconductor technology with active matrix driving, and advanced micro-scale packaging technology. α-MLED is another industry-leading technology pioneered by BOE based on the advantages of cutting-edge performance, low flicker, and seamless assembly, bringing users the ultimate immersive experience.

Scott is a driver of industry megatrends like the vidification of devices, bringing the movie theater experience to homes and pockets everywhere and enabling TVs that double as art galleries.

Having a strong fascination with travel, his escapades include running with the Olympic Torch in China, the thrill of being chased by monkeys in Malaysia, and being thrust inside one of the world’s biggest waterfalls in South America. Tapping into his passions for cycling and helping kids, Scott and his son biked 550 miles from San Jose to Los Angeles raising money and awareness for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
